The Word Of Promise New Testament (Audiobook)

The Word Of Promise New Testament (Audiobook)New Testament Audio Bible

By Thomas Nelson

I am thrilled to review this product.  I have so enjoyed listening to the Bible over the last few weeks!  As a mom of 4, it's tough to find the time and energy to dive into the word.  Sad, but true.  Listening to the Bible, though, is very doable with all of the driving I do around town!

Listening to the Bible is such a different experience than reading the Bible.  I continually discover passages, that I don't remember reading.  And I notice new aspects to passages I've read again and again.  I think it's because the actors using different inflections and emphasize different words.  This version is also recorded in radio theater style, so you can hear the story unfolding as the actors tell the story - you can hear things like the disciples' silverware at the Last Supper, or Pilate washing his hands after the people told him to crucify Jesus.

I've also been listening to some of the stories with my children.  My daughter commented on how difficult the Bible is to understand, but she really likes listening to the Bible.  It's great to present kids with a different style of learning the Bible!

The only downside to this Bible is the case.  I have a hard time getting the CDs out of the case.  But it could just be me!

I would recommend this Bible to anyone who wants to sink themselves into God's word.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exhange for my honest review.

Children's Prayers During Meals

The Armistead family taught our children a lovely blessing to sing at the dinner table. It is sung to the tune of the children's classic song, Are You Sleeping?

God our Father
God our Father
Once Again
Once Again
We bow our heads to thank you
Bow our heads to thank you

We love this blessing, and we've recently adapted it to involve younger children and guests. Instead of everyone singing each phrase twice, we sing it as an 'echo prayer'. One child leads the song, starting with the first phrase, "God our Father". The rest of the table echoes. Then the leader leads the second phrase , "once again", before waiting for the table to echo. And so forth, until the whole blessing is sung.

It's an easy way to remind our children (and ourselves) to give thanks to our Provider and Sustainer throughout the day.

Goody Bags for Marriage Retreat - please share your ideas!

Reader Question:
I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?

A Few Ideas:
Visit - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture.

26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers

My two boys LOVE legos, so they naturally end up scattering lego creations and random lego pieces throughout the house.  Last weekend, we converted their closet to be a LEGO WORLD.  Now they can store lego (and knex) pieces in their lego world, they have instructions for all of their kits in a ziplock bag, and they have a place to display their favorite ships.  And I have a mostly lego-free kitchen and living room!!

I just stumbled upon a great article with ideas for storing legos, if you have similar struggles in your house!  Check this out:  26 Ideas For Lego Storage Containers
